Bridge Support Awards

"I'm very happy and thankful that MCHRI was able to bridge the gap in our NIH R01 funding so that we did not need to shut down operations in Kenya this year and endure significant social capital loss. I am very grateful for the MCHRI Bridge Support, as well as funding that my postdocs have and are receiving through the Postdoctoral Support Program."
